CTC ready for concert fun with “Schoolhouse Rock Live!”

Conjunction-junction, what’s your function?

Remember singing along to those Saturday morning cartoons and learning just a little about grammar and the constitution without even realizing it? Bring back the glory days of your childhood and infuse a little educational fun into your own children at Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s latest production, “Schoolhouse Rock Live!”

With a mosh pit, ushers dressed as roadies, confetti cannons where the mess sticks around between shows, a live band and more, the “Schoolhouse Rock” you thought you knew is becoming something totally different. The fun doesn’t stop there - also in house for this rock show: haze machines, strobe lights and larger-than-life concert-style projections.

“This show is like no other,” Adam Burke, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s artistic director, said. “Children will think they’re at a rock concert, and parents won’t be able to stop singing along to the songs from their childhoods.”

Children’s Theatre of Charlotte will also offer an “Adult Night” performance with a pre-show reception, featuring food, beer and wine from Mac’s Speed Shop on April 23 for those 21 and older who want to go back to their childhoods – even just for an evening.

Tickets start at only $12 and are available online at or by phone at 704-973-2828. “Schoolhouse Rock Live!” debuts April 8 and will rock out until April 24. We welcome hearing-impaired audiences to the signed performance at 3 p.m. on April 23.

ImaginOn is conveniently located next to the Seventh Street light rail station. Free parking is also available. Visit for details.
